The 24-year-old beauty was crowned last night in Port Moresby.

The crowning took place at the Stanley Hotel guided by the Miss Pacific Islands Pageant theme of “Pacific We Are, One Step, One Aspiration”.

Seumanu, who is a public nurse by profession, was supported by the Samoan delegates at the crowning ceremony.

Miss Samoa won the Best Traditional Wear and Best Interview categories.

Regional Pageant board judging criteria under scrutiny

Prime Minister Tuilaepa Sailele Malielegaoi assured reigning Miss Samoa, Alexandra Iakopo that the Board can expect a formal letter from the government.

Iakopo was crowned first runner up in the regional pageant that was held in Fiji last week.

“In my eyes and in the eyes of your country, you are still a winner in our book,” Tuilaepa told Iokopo when she paid a courtesy call on the Prime Minister.

On the same token, he is pleased with the overall performance by Miss Samoa and has accepted with pride the outcome.
